WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 20, 2018) - The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. is inviting couples to fall in love and rekindle the flame in the inspiring surroundings of their downtown D.C. hotel. From a sensory induced multi-course dinner in Westend Bistro, to an enticing overnight package, the offerings available at the luxury hotel provide a host of unique experiences for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day celebration.

A Multicourse Dinner to Entice the Senses
On February 14th, 2018, Chef Alvin Dela Cruz will present his annual Valentine’s menu that incorporates carefully selected ingredients that act as aphrodisiacs. Within the beautiful setting of Westend Bistro, surrounded by dramatic floor to ceiling windows, couples will experience a multicourse dinner with enticing selections. The entrée course includes a Crispy Duck Breast option served with Figs, Balsamic Jus, and Pistachios, an ingredient that is believed in some cultures to arouse sexuality. For those craving a perfectly prepared steak, also known to boost dopamine levels and increase the heart rate, the Natural Ribeye entrée selection is delectably served with Pomme Puree, Roasted Maitake and Cabarnet Jus. Finally, the Ravioli entrée is made with Chestnut, known in ancient times as the “love potion.” The multicourse meal begins and ends with equally mouth-watering course selections. The menu provides a playful warning in the footnote: “this meal is known to entice the senses.” Couples are invited to plan ahead and continue the experience in one of the hotel’s renewed luxury rooms or suites.
